The new shipbuildings, which are conventionally fueled and will not be fitted with desulphurization towers, are expected to be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2026 and the first half of 2027. It should be noted that this is Laskaridis Maritime’s first order for an MR product tanker, and the contract value and unit cost have not yet been disclosed.
